Christie pretty much just cost himself the election and dismissed a big possible way to make revenue. It's 2015, and a large portion of people use marijuana, and not just for recreation. Childish stances that paint weed as some big evil drug, despite being relatively harmless, while ignoring it's medical benefits, yet supporting worse pharmaceutical drugs, gambling and alcohol is flat out hypocritical. I doubt we'll ever see a republican in office again, without major reforms to the party. This whole living in the past thing needs to stop. We live in a technological progressive society, where tolerance is very important. It's time the politicians start acting like it, instead of promoting this false utopian idea that not allowing drugs is going to magically make them go away and turn everyone into upstanding citizens.
